Ing. Adnan Mazari, PhD., originally from Pakistan, came to the Czech Republic in the year of 2008 to study a Master’s Degree in Liberec. As he was an excellent student, he continued in pursuing an academic career and currently works as a lecturer in the Department of Clothing, Faculty of Textile Engineering, Technical University of Liberec.
Why did he choose the Czech Republic? What were the initial cultural shocks? What does he think about the Czech black humour? What does he like and dislike about life in Czechia? This and more questions Dr. Mazari kindly answered and you can look forward to this talk about the experience of a foreigner living in the Czech Republic.

I wasn't ready for the inappropriate Czech humour, says Dr. Adnan Mazari, Pakistani lecturer at TUL
Michael G. Maurer is an American who studied high-school in Texas and then moved to California to pursue his film-making dreams. And maybe he would be still living in L. A., if there wouldn’t be a lucky coincidence of him meeting his future wife Markéta, a Czech from a city of Pilsen.
Michael is now living in Bohemia for more than a decade and he will share with you his insights from an American-Expat point of view. He has also many interesting stories from his travels around the world and from the movie industry (f. e. Spider-Man, Legally Blond 2,…), so you can look forward to hearing about that as well.
I fell in love with the Czech Republic because of the Weather, says ex-Californian Michael G. Maurer
Let’s get to answering one of the most frequently asked questions that I get from foreigners. I will be talking about the history of the Vietnamese minority in Czechia and also about Sapa which is something like a „Chinatown“ located in Prague. The address for visitors: SAPA, V Lužích 735, 142 00 Praha-Libuš-SAPA, Česko Enjoy!
Why are there so many Vietnamese in the Czech Republic?
There are currently about 500 000 foreigners living in the Czech Republic. Is it too many or too few? I will tell you how it is in comparison to other European countries. Also, you will learn about the top 6 countries from which foreigners are coming to Czech. And also some bits of Czech/Czechoslovakian history explaining the current situation.
